Bold move

While the heat wave is on it’s 4th day here in New York, heading towards its end in another day (hopefully), I decided to take a bold move last night — I slept without the a/c on, yeah, the unthinkable!!! I laid open my sleeping bag on the floor, put a sheet on top, and slept with the fan on and windows open, naked.

Well it’s true that I haven’t stopped sweating throughout the night, and when I got up this morning, it was hot. The morning sun was boiling hot. But the truth is, it wasn’t that bad. The fan was cooling, so it was hot but definitely not unbearably hot. As a bonus I didn’t have to walk out of the cold room in the morning and get into the heat — I hate that feeling. It was hot all along! There was no drastic change of temperature for me. I always thought it would be easier for me the handle the heat if I can get used it a bit more by minimizing my a/c usage.

One thing that I couldn’t avoid is the a/c at work. I have to stay with it for a good portion of the day, but it’s also the hottest hours of the day, so perhaps it’s not that bad afterall.
